Product description

Amazon Review

Tough over-achieving Kate was driven out of the FBI by her agent ex-husband and his chums; in a change of career, she works with victims and other witnesses in Minneapolis. When a local serial killer, the so-called Cremator, moves from prostitutes to the daughter of a leading local businessman, and is seen burning what is presumably her headless body, Kate is called in to talk to the untrustworthy street urchin witness, who clearly knows somewhat more than she is saying. To make Kate's life worse, the expert psychologist brought in on the case is Quinn, the man over whom she wrecked her marriage. There is a surprising amount of taut personal stuff in Hoeg's version of a stock forensic psychological thriller--Kate and Quinn have to come to terms with their past to clear their heads for the task in hand. There is also an acute sense of the internal politics of law enforcement and the pressures that both the rich and the powerless can bring to bear in the attempt to impose their wills on an investigation. This is a thriller pervaded by bitter irony and by a sense of what many such books forget--the tragedy of each gratuitous death.--Roz Kaveney
